"Peter was very good. Our division president got a lot of positive feedback. It was the perfect blend of economics and entertaining stories/jokes. Even our group president was laughing. And, although there was no time for Q&A, at least two clients talked to him afterwards. Thanks for all of your help over the years."
"Peter was phenomenal! He is the professor I wish I'd had in college! His presentation was informative and funny! The audience was completely into it, and their comments afterwards reaffirm it!"
"You are certainly the highlight of each conference! You have become a tradition with us and we would be honored if you can join us again next year."
"I can't tell you how many people commented on both the superb quality of the content and presentation style of your keynote address."
"Not only was your presentation insightful, it was, by a wide margin, the most energetic and entertaining presentation I have ever seen."
"Thank you so much for a wonderful performance last week! The attendees, I think, want you to conduct the whole meeting for 2002!"
"You're right - you are the professor we all wished we had in college! What a great presentation! You would think people would be ready to go home on the last morning of a conference, but I do believe they would have stayed for another hour or two to enjoy your work. Thank you for closing our conference with a "bang" and giving our attendees food for thought on their way home."
"All I can say is that you outdid yourself. There were many, many favorable comments from attendees, and everyone was just thrilled that you had been asked to be a luncheon speaker at the Conference. Your enthusiasm and energy is contagious, and it carried over through the balance of the entire evening."
"I reviewed the evaluations closely and the average rating ranged from 6 to 7, and even though the scale only went up to 7, you received a few 8s! Specific comments include: ‘His session was better than what was described in the newsletter;’ ‘Outstanding—best in a long time!’; ‘Excellent, Energizing!’; ‘Bring this guy back!’; ‘Awesome!’"
